What is it?

You can now create customized RSS Feeds for specific search parameters.

Why did we do this?

Our existing RSS Feeds listed all jobs; not very useful for someone looking for a specific job.

What does it look like?

We'll demonstrate with an example: Imagine that you are a PHP Developer looking for:

  • Only Hourly Paid Jobs
  • Full-Time Work (30+ hrs/week)
  • Job Duration Minimum 8 weeks
  • Buyers with at least 1 paid job

Select these criteria in the Advanced Search box on the Jobs Search Page:

Click the Search button. If the jobs that appear appeal to you, right-click the RSS link and copy the link to paste it into your RSS Reader:

From now on, your RSS feed will only show jobs with the specific criteria you selected. You can create as many customized RSS Feeds as you like!
